Re: Maxprop, J-Prop, Variprop

Update on my search for a Prop: After a good deal of research and consultation, I decided on the J-Prop and ordered one through Stanley at Betamarine's US distributorship. In the end I decided that investing in a 3-blade feathering prop for this boat was a good move in the long term, even if it didn't produce huge results with our old W13. So for the 2019 season we'll run this combination and see how it goes.

I'll post again in June once I've had a chance to evaluate how the new prop performs. Thanks again for the input from everybody here.

And to double-ender: I don't seem to be able to reply to your PM since I'm a new user of the site, but great to get your message. If you want to PM again with an email address I'll contact you off-line. Best regards.
